Why I made this master
class?

“My passion is motivating
people to get better results with Google Analytics”

My fascination with analytics begin in the early 2000's when I responsible for launching an e-commerce website. I developed intuitive dashboards and reporting processes to deliver almost real time analysis using server log file analysis.

This was a fairly manual method, and meant a lot of code hijacking to make things work. Time-consuming and not at all scalable. Since then, and the advent of Google Analytics, this is significantly easier and much more fun too!

The #1 hurdle that many marketers tell me is that they're unsure where to start and are not confident in what Google Analytics is telling them, or in most case what it is not.
